  1. The fact is that in retail, 47% of your losses come from employees, 37% come from theft, 10% is shrinkage and error and the rest is being ripped off by your suppliers. That last is smallest because trade depends on trust. Employees steal because we live in a criminogenic society ruled by a kleptocracy. You cannot do anything about that larger problem, but I know how you can protect yourself.
